Talera vs I Spit on Your Grave

Posted 20th September 2011 at 03:53 PM by Talera

Sorry for the frequent entries, I'm on holidays so have time to catch up.

Okay, let's face it - I'm a horror girl. I love a good splatter as much as the next horror buff (though I prefer there also to be a mind screw in there). I saw the original of this film when I was in my teens, during a period where it was not banned in Australia (for those overseas, the original went through a couple of periods where it was banned in Australia due to the sexual violence).

Talera vs Inception

Posted 20th September 2011 at 12:56 PM by Talera

Dreams. Fluid, intangible. Somehow even the most unrealistic concept can seem to be real and possible. Trying to grab hold of it and feeling it slip through your fingers.

Sometimes the dream is so real that when you wake you have to consider whether it actually happened. The vividness causing deja vu as a temporary state.

Everyone has considered certain things in their life. Is it possible for someone to read your mind? Is it possible for someone to enter your dreams?...

Talera vs Adaptations

Posted 18th September 2011 at 10:55 PM by Talera

Sitting here with my 2yr old daughter reclining on my knee. She's chomping through apple slices and watching Peppa Pig on one half of the screen while I'm browsing TOG on the other half.

Perfect Saturday morning.

A departure of sorts

Posted 27th June 2011 at 02:04 PM by Talera

It is days like today I hate my job. Well to phrase it better I donít hate my job, I hate some of the things Iím exposed to.

Normally I love my job, even with all the frustrations. While I get exposed to negative things, it still interests me. While many would find those exposures upsetting or tragic, I tend to be able to distance myself from them and deal with the task at hand.

Occasionally I have the days where the Ďthingí Iím exposed to is so tragic not even I can...
